Reputation

Reputation is heavy, an expensive coat draped over your shoulders by your friends, your family — such an honor to wear — but what they don’t know is how the dampness clings to the wool inside, leaking down your back, from the sleeves just as slime streaks down a prison wall — on the outside, cool and glossy, on the inside, hot and sweaty — but you can’t take it off, because you’ve got nothing but tender infant skin beneath, and do you want to stand naked before the world —? Stripped of that trust lying across your shoulders, that collar squeezing your neck, like a snake, alwa

The Mist Market (short writing exercise)

When I entered the marketplace, my lungs seemed to shrink in my chest as I was enveloped by nebulous, chalk-colored smog. I did not falter in my steps, but I walked slowly, peering about me as though I were in a dream. The sun overhead looked like a molten chunk of white gold, turning over and over in the heated sky. It burned through the ghostly haze in such an overbearing manner that the townsfolk seemed loath to lift their eyes any higher than the brims of their hats. The hard cobblestone pathways were laced with cracks, and plumes of dust rose out of them furiously whenever a wooden cart clattered and clacked over them. I saw a watermel

My Bio
Hello and welcome, weary traveler; I see you've stumbled across my page. Well, my name is Katie and if I were to tell you the single most important thing about myself, it's that I possess the soul of a writer, which makes me an artist in my own right, I suppose. And though my passion and chief talent is writing (novels, poetry and whatnot) I do draw things every once in a while, and I've more recently discovered an interest in photography even though my best and only camera is that of my iPhone 5. -_- Since I've become a more active member on DA those are the types of things I've been uploading, as I'm rather shy about my writing and safeguard it closely. Maybe someday I'll share some of my literary work here, but for now I think I'll stick with photographs and the occasional drawing or two. All in all, I'm completely enamoured with the DeviantArt community and the phenomenal work it produces; it's changed my life for the better and I'm very proud to be a part of it. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, fellow artist!

*Let it be known that I am also quite fond of llama trading. If you gave me a llama, you are 100% guaranteed to get one back!*

I'm back

I'm back

Hi guys, I'm officially back from my hiatus. Unfortunately I don't have anything to post at the moment because my computer's hard drive crashed and all my files (literally thousands, I'm dead serious) have been lost for good. In my infinite stupidity I hadn't backed anything up since 2014, so all my poetry, all my stories, all my pictures, everything I'd been building for years is gone. I won't lie, it feels as though my heart has been hit by a bus and dragged across a mile of asphalt; I feel grief as though I've lost someone close to me. I'm not giving up, however. I owe it to myself to rebuild, to keep producing creative things. After all I
